For me, being a vegetarian isn’t about the animals or mad cow; it’s about being healthy, not just in the body but in the mind too. I was a vegetarian for a while, but it’s hard when your family is not, so I’ve kinda drifted away. As soon as I move out, I’ll be a vegetarian again.
Defeat the meat...
I’m currently trying to convince myself to become a vegaterian too. I know that it’d definitely help me feel better and healthier, not to mention help me lose a little weight. :P So, I’m definitely thinking of giving it a shot…it probably won’t be so hard, since I usually eat by myself (unless I’m with my girlfriend or friends or family…doh!), so maybe I can do this. :) Good luck to you!
